gp “Morgan Freeman” rant

Okay, so I’m going to assume that if you’ve made it to my website you have read my novel, “Eden M51.”

Ever since the story’s conception, I have always envisioned it being made into a blockbuster movie. As such, I couldn’t help but imagine what actor or actress would play in the leading roles, and in some cases, I wrote the character based on the actor. From the beginning, I have always wanted Morgan Freeman to be ah’n-Ben. Aside from being a stellar actor, director, and narrator, Mr. Freeman has also won an Oscar and Golden Globe Award and was nominated for an Academy Award several times. More so, and even more importantly, it is a role he has played in other movies such as “Bruce Almighty” and “Evan Almighty.” Although he will probably go on to make many more great films, to me he will always be “the voice of God.” I think he is just awesome.

So if there’s anyone out there reading this, do me this favor: spread the word, make some noise, get the buzz out, and please help me get Morgan Freeman to play this part!


Thanks. I’m done ranting now.

But I still have thoughts about some of the other characters. I’d have like to see Hawke cast as Robert Redford (in his younger days!) and Ben Johnson would have to be Terry Crews. Dr. Hoyos I always saw as Salma Hayek, and Bishop as Sigourney Weaver. Patrick Stewart would make a great Da’ath-Jadon. Some of the characters I have never had a distinct person in mind, though I’m sure there are several that would make great portrayals. Characters such as Jim, Frank, and il’Naioth.

Do you agree with my selections? Do you have your own vision of who should play these characters? Send me a message on GoodReads and tell me. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
